    1. 2,5 stelle Il mito dell infanzia eterna, un desiderio proibito e molto pericoloso Quando si pensa a Peter Pan, la prima cosa che di solito viene in mente sono le mirabolanti avventure vissute dai protagonisti dell adattamento cinematografico della Disney, in stile L Isola del Tesoro di Stevenson Io per prima non avrei mai associato una valenza cos fortemente negativa al personaggio di Peter Pan, come invece questo testo sottolinea in continuazione Peter l incarnazione del preoccupante fenomeno p [...]

    2. My favorite play of all time One of the best quotes of the book is one girl is worth twenty boys and I think that s enough to read the story for.

    3. Lettura perturbanteQuesta non l edizione narrativa pi nota dell opera edizione che io, tra parentesi, non ho ancora mai letto bens il testo teatrale originario che venne portato in scena a Londra per la prima volta nel dicembre 1904, e successivamente rielaborato da Barrie in forma di romanzo.Questo passaggio da l una a l altra forma implic diverse modifiche, tra cui soprattutto l attenuazione della portata sottilmente demoniaca della figura di Peter Pan, che nella prima stesura in special modo [...]

    4. Seconda stella a destra e poi dritto fino al mattino chi non vorrebbe andare l ogni tanto Dove non si diventa mai adulti e cinici, insieme ai bimbi perduti il mio preferito Macchia , quelli caduti dalla carrozzina mentre la governante stava guardando da un altra parte Andare nel mondo in cui anche il perfido Uncino s intenerisce di fronte a Peter Forse J.M Barrie quando lo scrisse pensava a quel bambino che troppo presto era diventato invisibile agli occhi della madre, dopo la morte del fratelli [...]

    5. To die will be an awfully big adventure Peter PanAs always I give Peter Pan the highest rating.The stage direction was phenomenal for this play giving context to the finest details and giving a perfect description of the scenery that each act is set in as always the ending made me cry about missing my innocent childhood but we all must grow up I went and saw the National Theatre Live production of Peter Pan yesterday and it was fantastic.

    6. See review of Peter Pan Additional note Barrie doesn t seem to understand the concept of stage directions being short or not being essential to the plot It s much better suited to be a novel.

    7. This was surprisingly disappointing I had heard of the problematic elements in the story, but JEEZ The fantastical narrative is lovely to read and think about a land where you never have to grow up but Barrie could have written it WAY BETTER Full review to come.

    8. I was pleasantly surprised by this play, which I enjoyed, as I did Barrie s introduction I had previously read the children s story to my children and had expected the play to be very similar to the book, although necessarily compressed However, although the same basic story, it is an independent work having been written before the book It is darker, which surprised me, and Peter Pan is a much ambiguous figure of the child who never wants to grow up.Well worth reading.I read the Folio Society e [...]

    9. Did not read this edition, but this was the only one I found with just the play and the same amount of pages as the edition I read I read it in the Peter Pan and Other Plays The Admirable Crichton Peter Pan When Wendy Grew Up What Every Woman Knows Mary Rose edition, which consists of several plays which I did not and have no intention of reading.Not going to review this either, as I m reading it for class, but a few points 1 To die will be an awfully big adventure 2 The ending killed me Nearly [...]

    10. Non ho amato la forma teatrale del testo Capisco che stato concepito cos , ma leggerlo a volte mi un po pesato, avrei preferito vederlo su un palco Altra cosa che ho odiato stata la traduzione italiana Non trovo il senso di tradurre e cambiare i nomi di alcuni personaggi principali I fratelli di Wendy sono Michael e John, non Michele e Gianni E vogliamo parlare di Giacomo Uncino A questo punto avrebbero fatto prima a chiamare il libro Pietro Padella Diciamo che stata una lettura carina, ma sono [...]

    11. All I want to do now is watch the Mary Martin version on VHS I had so many memories of this story and the play flood back into me while reading Some of the dialogue may be a over dramatic and precious, but it tugs at the heartstrings and fills you with an overwhelming sense of nostalgia And I have never seen such overly detail stage directions not just stage directions but the internal monologues of the characters as well Barrie knew how to craft a good story.

    12. Why does this remain a classic There is racism, sexism, classism The humor and light heartedness did not come through to me Did not enjoy reading it to my 7yo daughter Tbh, I don t think she much enjoyed it either Perhaps seeing the play or movie will change our minds, but this was not a great intro.

    13. I really enjoyed reading the original version of Peter Pan The stage directions in this script are unlike any I ve ever read before They are so elaborate and detailed Some would even believe that all of these details are not crucial to the actual show, but it is great to read Barrie s thoughts

    14. I favor the play version over the novel in terms of conciseness and the compactness of the story In reading, both versions have the same pleasant wit and engaging story, but the play is tighter with fewer detours I also find Peter a bit likable in the play version, probably because we get less of his carelessness and neglect.

    15. Technically, I read the theatrical edition included in the Norton Anthology of Children s Literature Not enough can be said about this play Barrie s stage directions are poignant, poetic, and utterly original.

    16. So beautiful and perfect The e book version I read had several errors but nothing unmanageable I m wondering myself when would be a good time to read this to a child probably 5 yrs old But the play version is better

    17. A little different from what I expected the Disney version , but wonderful all the same Even though I already knew the story, there were a few surprises tucked here and there that made it feel like a story I hadn t read all the way through before Very good.

    18. Funny and insightful, but there s so much action description that it s like watching a rom com between JM Barrie and the novel he d eventually adapt this play into I m sitting here, reading and thinking, Just kiss already

    19. Adoro James barrie e la sua creazione, la sua fantasia la sua immaginazione il suo peter pan la sua wendy che fa sognare la sua capacit di inventare un mondo

    20. One of the best stage adaptations of JM Barrie s classic commissioned by Britain s National Theatre
